Wow. I'm not quite sure what to say other than, "wow". Silver Linings Playbook deserved all of the hype and accolades that it received. It was an awesome film with the type of characters that really bring to life an emotionally story. It's rare that I feel a pull of emotion for love stories (possibly because they're all so sappy), but SLP actually moved me with the way it built up to the final scene. Still no tears though. The movie to do that will have to be out of this world.
The characters in the film are the true hook. And that is especially true for the work in which Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence showed off in this film. Cooper was really good as the crazy Pat Jr., but what Lawrence did was definitely Oscar worthy. Her role as Tiffany was one of the best acting performances I'd ever seen. And I'm not exaggerating or overreacting. It was that damn good.
Nothing much to say here. The film has a reputation and all I can do is pretty much affirm the hype. Awesome movie. A must watch.
